Towered mini mansion in South Melbourne

Original post 22 April 2019

Claremont, 1884, architect unknown. Built for the Heather family, Mr Heather being a long term Councillor and Mayor of South Melb in the 1880s, found lots of reports on births, then garden parties, birthday parties, then the kids being married, into the 1900s. It’s been a home for the elderly since the South Melbourne Community Chest bought it in 1956. Yet another example of #IndianRed and #BrunswickGreen being applied semi-randomly, so not actually a #Victoriancolourscheme.
